What people said about the performance:
“By far the best theatre experience I have ever had, completely encompassing and at one with the medieval church. We both felt overcome by it. Thank you!”
“Thanks to you for another enjoyable evening!  I had to keep dodging the daggers from my prime position in the pews! And the music really added to the experience. The actors were all well trained. (I think Romeo actually really loved Juliet in real life!)”
